figures initially. >> with the white house in damage control mode, some are wondering if mr. obama is facing a second term curse like ronald reagan who was plagued by the iran-contra affair or bill clinton who was embroiled in the monika lewinsky scandal. >> there is something to be said about the historical antecedents here. it's hard to be president and more difficult to be president in this day and age where controlling your message on any given day is virtually impossible. >> now, dave kemp, charp of the house ways and means committee, has written a letter to cms, one of the agencies in charge of the website asking for as much information as possible about those enrollment figures. the obama administration has called in some of the biggest names in the tech industry to help, including folks from google and oracle. they say they'll have the website running smoothly by the end of this month. >> from the white house, nbc's kristen welker, thank you. >>> as the white house works to fix the glitches with healthcare.gov, president obama is asking congress to refocus its energies on the

about what the nsa was up to. but other officials say president obama or at least his white house staff knew all about it. the president while not admitting or denying anything, is trying to calm this diplomatic storm with the promise of a review. >> we give them policy direction, but what we've seen over the last several years is their capacities continue to develop and expand, and that's why i'm initiating a review to make sure that what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean what they should be doing. i'm not here to talk about classified information. what i am confirming is the fact that we're undergoing a complete review of how our intelligence operates outside of the country. >> joining me now, bob bair. as we're listening to this hearing, we were hearing some references to 9/11, justifications for why the united states needs the nsa intelligence collection. so really, to you, as a former member of the intelligence community, what is fair game? >> fair game is listening in to our enemies. iran, china, russia, anybody who poses us internationally, we can't trust. listeni

really know. the white house is saying that president obama knew this summer when an internal review that was started revealed that this was happening on about 35 world leaders. and at that time, the administration kind of intensified this review. they're saying the president didn't know the up until then. but officials are telling us, you know, when president obama took office, he was briefed on these programs and if he didn't know specifically which countries, he knew that generally that this program existed. now, wa is he going to do about it? the white house says that the administration is taking this review not only about whether the u.s. can have the surveilance on world leaders but should they. does this really fall in line with the policy goals. and these are the questions that are going to be talked about in the next few weeks. >> the thing that's interesting here too, elyse, you talk about spain and france and particularly germany upset about their leaders perhaps being listened on but a no spying ingredient, a club if you like, already exists. u.s. has that no spy deal wit
